the Internet Archive has always been the one place on the internet I could come with my older operating systems and still access fine content, including video... but of late even you folks make it hard for us to access anything unless we have all the latest gadgets and gizmos. This is a real drag!
Here in Illinois we just passed new legislation that makes it impossible for us to dispose of aging hardware and outdated digital equipment anywhere but at a special recycling center where "de"manufacturing takes place in order to "harvest" useful material from old electronics. Landfills are spilling over with obsolete electronics and computers. In order to stay in compliance with State law it behooves one to make their older configurations work with today's intenet. Please help us to do just that. I am unable to watch content with your new viewer on any of my Macintosh OS configurations that go back beyond Leopard, OSX 10.5 This review was written using Mac OSX 10.3.9 Panther on a B & W Power Mac G3, still a stunningly useful computer. If only you internet archivists would live up to your name.

we work on the last power PC version of firefox, version 3.6, which is now over 3+ years old, and should work on computers all the way back to 2004!

so please give firefox a try and I believe that you will find you have more years with your machine.

we can't prioritize extremely old hardware -- that detracts from the ever modernizing and improving tech of the evolving software, OS, and hardware markets. so hopefully we can find a happy medium somewhere.

we are committed as of now to try to support firefox v3.6...
